Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"They appear to be immune to some of winedom's less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of creme de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This fullbodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I'm sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 2025 years. Amazing!"
"Lavishly oaked, with creamy mocha, vanilla, cedar and anise notes at the edge of a rich core of dark berry, plum and black licorice flavors. Tight, focused and persistent, showing a seductive character. Over forty years ago, Charlie and Lorna Wagner embarked on an incredible journey with their son Chuck starting a family winery in the center of Napa Valley. Now in its third generation, Caymus continues to produce world class Cabernet Sauvignon. "
